People in the Calabria region of southern Italy have long drank bergamot juice for its cholesterol and heart benefits. Modern science has studied bergamot juice to find out how it helps promote these great health benefits and has discovered that the bergamot's unique group of plant molecules—called flavonoids—are responsible for its fantastic health effects.
The flavonoids in bergamot juice are potent inhibitors of the liver's cholesterol production. BergaOne has a proprietary and clinically tested bergamot juice extract, along with CoQ10, to increase cellular energy production and policosanol to further support healthy cholesterol.
Your body's cholesterol comes from two sources. One source is fatty foods and the other source is your liver. Fatty foods are responsible for only 25% of your cholesterol, while your liver contributes 75%. Reducing liver cholesterol production is the best way to support healthy cholesterol, and BergaOne can help.
Red yeast rice is fermented rice with red yeast (Monascus purpureus) grown on it. Studies have found it helps support healthy blood cholesterol levels. However, red yeast rice that isn’t grown under strictly controlled conditions may contain citrinin—a kidney toxin that can cause serious health problems.
Phytosterols (also known as sterols and stanols) are chemicals that help block the absorption of cholesterol from fatty foods. Although regarded as safe, their effectiveness is limited. They can’t reduce the 75% of cholesterol that comes from your liver, nor do they raise the good (HDL) cholesterol important for blood vessel and heart health.
